Hey, guys! New here, and new to PSP7 :) I'm no graphics design person by any means, it's just a lot of fun for me to play with pictures and see what I can do. However, I'm pretty much dead beginner, but I'm wanting to learn.

More than anything else right now, I just kind of need an introduction to layers. I understand they're like taking a transparent sheet of paper and putting it over an original picture, but that's all I've got. Anyone got a way of just kind of giving me a run-down on layers, maybe a small and basic PSP7 exercise to get used to how they work? Not all of them, just kind of so I can get an understanding.

font trick!

This was originally posted by kevinr way back in 2003, and since it's a trick I still use, I thought I'd post the information again.

If there are decorative fonts, or other fonts, that you only use from time to time, they don't need to be 'installed' in order to use them in PSP7.

I keep my downloaded fonts in their own folder (C:/fonts, imagine that! *g*).

1. Unzip the new font file into that folder.

2. When you want use your new font, simply open your font folder, then double-click on the font file to open it. You should see a nifty preview of the font.

3. Minimize your font folder, but don't close the preview.

4. That font will now show up in PSP7's list of fonts that are available to use.

So I have a question and if anyone could help me that would be amazing, I downloaded a copy of PSP7 from a website like years ago and I noticed whenever I try installing a lot of brushes PSP starts to freeze and then errors and whenever I re-open it I cant use the paint brush for anything! It always errors, so I need to know whats up and how to fix it because I need to be able to make brushes! Grrrr...

Program Crashes with Font Use

I'm not sure if this qualifies as a suitable question, but I've found that my copy of Paintshop Pro crashes when I try to use any downloaded fonts.

I'm running on Windows XP, but I never had this problem when I was running on '98. I can't even find anything online that might help.

The files aren't bugged, and I've reinstalled the program twice to try to fix any missing files or whatnot, but that hasn't helped. Also, when I installed the fonts, they went in properly and without problem. I can use them in any other program, even PSP9.

Mods, if this is not what the community is here for, go right ahead and delete this. I tried, right?

Community members, if you have any wisdom or tips, please help. This is very frustrating, as I can't use my favorite font in my favorite program.

Thanks so much in advance.

Quick question. I have PSP7 on my old computer which runs Windows XP. We recently got a new computer and I was wondering if PSP7 is okay to use on Windows Vista, and if so, is there a way I can transfer PSP7 from my old computer to the new computer. I don't have the CD anymore.

Also, if not. Does anyone know where I can find a trial version of PSP7 until I can buy another copy. I tried all the websites I knew to try but none of them had it.
